A. STEINTHAL SAMPLE HOLDER June 14, 1938.

Filed Aug. 14, 1936 ATTORNEYS Patented June 14, 1938 UNITED STATES 2,120srs ATENT @FFiQE 6 Claims.

This invention relates to improvements in sample holders and has particular reference to a foldable holder for containing swatches and the like.

An object of the invention is to provide an im- 5 proved holder of simple and practical construction wherein a sample carrier is pivotally connected to a free edge of one of a pair of hingedly connected cover sections which, when closed, impart to the holder the appearance of a book with 10 the samples disposed between said sections and the carrier constituting a support or abutment for the other cover section.

Another object is to mount between the hingedly connected cover sections of a holder,

15 a sample carrier of box-like formation having disposed therein a filler block which imparts rigidness to the carrier and to which are attached the ends of samples inserted into said carrier with the remainder of the samples disposed between 20 said cover sections when the latter are closed.

The above and other objects will appear in the course of the following detailed description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing which illustrates a preferred embodiment 25 of the inventive idea.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the holder in its open position and showing the samples and their carrier turned back.

30 Figure 2.is a perspective View, partly broken away, of the holder in its closed position.

Figure 3 is a transverse section of the line 33 of Figure 2, and

Figure 4 is a section on the line 4-4 of Figure 35 2, the dotted lines indicating the tilted position of the sample carrier.

Referring more particularly to the accompanying drawing, the holder is shown as consisting essentially of three elements, namely, the

40 front and back cover sections 5 and 6, respectively, and the sample carrier 1 which may be pivotally connected to a free edge of one of said sections, preferably the back section 6.

The cover sections themselves are made from 4 sheets of cardboard 8 of sufficient thickness to be fairly rigid and are covered by a lining 9 of cloth, paper or other fabricated material, there being a portion l of said lining which constitutes a backing strip for interconnecting the two cover 50 sections and 6. Secured to the inner surface of said portion l0 and coextensive therewith is a strip or block ll of wood the outer surface of which is rounded transversely so that the strip in will be similarly curved and thus simulate the 55 back of an ordinary book. The inner surface of said block H is covered by a liner strip l2 which is adhesively attached to said surface and to the inner surfaces of the cover sections ii and 6.

The carrier l which is positioned to extend along a free edge or one of the cover sections, preferablyto the upper transverse edge of the section 6 so as to extend perpendicular to the hinge joint between the cover sections formed by the block l l and its lining i0, is made of box-like formation and is constituted, principally, from an 10 elongated strip iii of thin cardboard or any other suitable material. A major portion M of slightly less area than the cover 6 is adhesively secured thereto, as best shown in Figure 4, and is covered with an outer lining l5 and an inner lining I6 which extends for a part of the length of said portion l4. At the points ll and It, the strip is bent to define the bottom or rear wall E9 of the carrier 7, and from the point it to the end of the strip, the latter forms the upper side wall 26 of the carrier. The portion of the strip l3 forming said wall 20 is provided with lateral extensions 2| (Figure 3) at the ends of the wall, and said extensions constitute the end walls of the carrier and are provided with inturned flaps 22. A lower side wall 23 of the same material as the strip I3 completes the carrier 1. This latter Wall is secured to the flaps 22 and has a lining 24 provided with an extension 25 which is interposed between and secured to adjacent surfaces of the portion I4 and its lining I5, thereby constituting a hinge connection between the cover section 6 and the carrier 1' whereby the latter may be swung to the position shown in Figure 1 and indicated in dotted lines in Figure 4.

To lend rigidity to the walls of the carrier 1, there is disposed therein and secured to its various walls by an adhesive, a filler block 26 of less depth than that of the carrier so as to provide a space for the reception of adjacent ends of sample swatches 21 which are of slightly less area than the cover sections so as to be wholly disposed therebetween when the sections are closed. Before placing the block 26 in position within the carrier, the samples 21 are attached to the block by flexible elements 28, such as cords, the intermediate portions of which are passed through openings in the samples while the ends of the cords are secured to the block by fasteners 29.

With the holder closed, the carrier 1 with its samples rest upon the cover section 6 and the wall 20 of said carrier acts as a support for the cover section 5 so that said sections are maintained in parallel relation. The carrier 1 also closes one end of the holder which has all the outward appearances of an ordinary book. By swinging the section 5 to the open position, as shown in Figure 1, the samples 2'! are exposed and the same may be bodily swung, by the pivotal movement of the carrier, to the position shown in said figure, should it be desired to examine the samples individually, starting with the bottom one in the group.

What is claimed is:

1. A sample holder in book form comprising hingedly connected cover sections, a box-like carrier pivotally connected to one of said cover sec tions and constituted by a backing sheet secured to the inner surface of said section to a point adjacent a free edge thereof, said sheet being extended to form the back and a side wall of said carrier and having flaps constituting the end Walls thereof, a second side wall for said carrier pivoted to said sheet and combining with the first-named wall to provide the carrier with an open side, a filler block secured in said carrier and providing a space between the same and said open side for receiving the ends of samples, and means attached to said block and engaging said samples to retain the same between said cover sections. 1

2. A sample holder comprising a cover section, a carrier pivotally connected to said section and constituted by a backing sheet secured to the inner surface of said section, said sheet being extended to form the back and a side Wall of said carrier, a second side Wall for said carrier pivoted to said sheet and combining with the first-named Wall to provide the carrier with an open side, and means in said carrier for attaching samples thereto.

3. A sample holder comprising a cover section, a carrier pivotally connected to said section and including a strip of material having a portion secured to said section with the remainder of the strip forming a back and a side wall for said carrier, a second side wall for said carrier, a flexible member attached to said second wall and to said section and constituting a hinged connection between the latter and said carrier, and means to secure ends of samples in said carrier.

4. A sample holder comprising a cover section, a carrier'pivotally connected to said section and including a strip of material having a portion secured to said section and its remainder formed to provide a back and a side wall for said carrier, a second side wall for said carrier, a lining for said section, a flexible member having a portion secured beneath said lining and another portion attached to said second wall and forming a hinge connection between said section and carrier, and means to secure ends of the samples in said carrier. 4

5. A sample holder comprising a back section, a carrier pivotally connected to said section and including a bendable strip, a lining therefor, a portion of said strip and lining being secured to said section and the remainder bent to form a back and a wall for saidcarrier, a second lining for said strip, a flexible member forming a pivotal mounting for said carrier and having a portion interposed between said strip and second lining and another portion extending free of said strip, a second wall for said carrier secured to the latter portion of said flexible member, and sample attaching means fixed in said carrier.

6. A sample holder comprising a back section, a carrier pivoted to said section and including a strip having a portion secured to said section and another portion bent to form a back and a Wall for said carrier and having flaps constituting end walls therefor, another wall for said carrier pivoted to said section and to which said flaps are secured, and sample attaching means fixed in the first and last named walls of said carrier.
